You mean you're thnikking about buying one. Kappa
I think the world needs more gateron awareness, since they're worth so much more than just RGB backlighting.

I wanted to try out rgb backlighting since rgb leds are dirt cheap relative to all of the other parts I've bought for testing, and I just wanted more code to work on. These definitely won't be out any time soon, and I realize that only means "at least a week" for me, but I really do think it'll take a while.
That's the idea

But hey, you could make a keypad v2+ that has all sorts of dumb RGB effects and create the end-all of keypads in general
I could do it over pm/email, but I won't add the option to my Etsy (still no add-on pricing.) Be careful, though.

I could do it but you'd have to catch me before a big order, which are getting less and less frequent since I'm buying in bigger and bigger batches. I'm running pretty low so my next purchase will probably be within the next few weeks if you don't mind waiting a little bit. You mean the ones from keypop, right? I was actually considering picking some up with my last order because I thought it would look cool but decided against it since they aren't transparent.

Glad you like it and thanks for the +1! Maybe it's just becuase I used them in the product shots but there are a few more people going for them now which I'm very happy to see.

I'd be surprised if you could manage to break one but I have no objections

Glad it's been working out for you and thanks for the tape testimonial. I've added more info to all of my Etsy pages so hopefully people will know you can actually clean it now

(holy crap this tape is amazing, its fully reusable)
I'm using a v1 keypad with gateron clears.
Here's a small update to the o-ring situation.
Pituophis wrote:This was a few days ago, but Thnikk provides excellent customer support.
I had an issue with one press registering multiple clicks. He did everything he could to help me.
In the end, I found out on my own that it seems the o-ring(I believe it reduces the key's travel distance by 0.4 mm) was keeping the key on the edge of pressed and not pressed so when I pressed down it would register as multiple clicks. Removing the o-rings fixed it and hasn't ever registered multiple clicks from one press since.
I've considered it, but these pose the same issue with the lack of posts on the stem as o-rings do with the caveat of not being able to reliably stack them. I'll still probably try them on one of my personal keypads to see if there's that much of a noticeable difference within the next few weeks. They do look like they'd do a better job with sound dampening.
Wingler wrote:Have you tried using soft-landing pads on any switches yet?
Something like this could be a good alternative to O-rings altogether.
I haven't tried using these with osu so they may not be good gameplay wise but regular typing does the job.
you can't forget this use for the keypad ~ I laughed a little too hard at it.
^^ If you're asking, it's legit from the website.
Nahh, I have a big, red Staples "Easy" button that does it for me. It's also a surprisingly fun project to do.
